“Fujoshi’s Guide” Promo Video

As we enter our final stretch of getting these books prepped for sales, we’ve had our partners at Tigris put together a detailed video explaining all of the unique features readers will have access to with this first of hopefully many volumes of A Fujoshi’s Guide to Japanese.

Hopefully with this you’ve gotten a slightly clearer understanding of all the goodies waiting for you within the digital pages of this textbook! Look forward to it, and we’re always happy to answer any questions you might have either here in the comments, in our forums, or in private via our contact form.

    This looks absolutely fantastic (especially the guide concerning the stroke orders – I wish I’d had something like this when I started learning Hebrew…) and I’m totally tempted to buy this even though I don’t actually feel like learning Japanese, so that says something. I wish you all the best for the final stage of preparation and looking forward to all the good stuff~

      Hi 🙂 It’ll be out around mid-May (so very soon) and available for purchase from our store (which will open in the next few days).

      We’ll put up detailed instructions when it’s available!

    Whyyyyyyy is it not available right now? I want to buy all the things! *grabby hands*

    But seriously, this looks awesome! I’m so excited, you have no idea! I took two years of Japanese yeaaaars ago in college, and I’d planned to take all four years except some things got messed up with my schedule and basically I never got to take more. Since then, I’ve always been planning to take Japanese classes again to refresh my memory but it’s such a pain trying to take classes while working full time and balancing everything else in my life. So I’ve actually been wanting something I could do online in my own time, and this will be perfect for it 🙂

    Also as a side note, I really love your guys’ business model and want to say I fully support you in everything you do. I’m so excited that there’s a company like this that has people I already know and trust involved, AND is directly connected to personnel in Japan. It’s one of the first times I’ve felt like if I spend money, I know where it’s going and I know it’s going to good people. Also, I’m completely all about helping mangaka get a more international audience, especially if they’re new, not as well known, or under appreciated. You’re like the neighborhood mom and pop BL store I always wanted haha

    Since I’m really intersted, I’d like to know in what form it will be published exactly: DO I need a special device or programm to view it or can I simply use my computer?

    • courtneyApril 30, 2013

      You’ll be able to view it in several ways: either on your computer via your browser (Chrome or Safari), which I’d personally probably recommend in this situation unless you have an iPad (not just any tablet, but an iPad specifically, as it’s best viewed via iBooks if you’re not going to view it on a computer). It’s a textbook, so reading it on a computer might get a little tedious, in which case a tablet would probably be the next best thing, so I recommend the iPad view.

      It has lots of animation and audio accompaniment, features which are only supported in the browser or in iBooks–so those are going to be where you get the best experience. However, it can be downloaded as an epub book as well, which means any app (android or iOS or otherwise) which supported epub format should be able to handle it without issue.

      tl;dr – no special device needed so long as you have a computer with Chrome/Safari or a smartphone/tablet of some sort! There’s no special DRM or such mess with our products, and I’ve been able to try some of the books out on several devices with no issue whatsoever 🙂
